MR. KLEIN presented by LA Jewish Film Festival in cooperation with Laemmle Theatres
MR. KLEIN (1976), a long unseen masterwork, was blacklisted American director Joseph Losey's first film in French. This is a brand new restoration of the French thriller with Q&A with renowned Holocaust scholar, Dr. Michael Berenbaum, Director of the Sigi Ziering Institute at American Jewish University.
1942, in Occupied France, a Catholic art dealer named Mr. Klein (Alain Delon) with his lavish apartment, exploits the situation of the Jews by buying and selling their works of art. When a Jewish man of the same exact name surfaces in Paris, Klein comes under suspicion and experiences the persecution of his countrymen firsthand.

A SLOW-BURNING FRENCH THRILLER
Suffused not only with history, but also with echoes of Kafka, Dostoyevsky and the clipped paranoia of Loseys collaborations with Harold Pinter.
